Final Exam Cookies

The second finest cookie known to humankind. These are Land O'Lakes "Buttery Jam Tarts" except with black cherry preserves instead of raspberry. And try some ground almonds, too.

Ingredients

1/2 cups all-purpose flour 
2/3 cup butter, softened 
1/2 cup sugar 
1  large egg
2 tablespoons milk 
1 teaspoon almond extract 
1/4 teaspoon baking soda 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
1/2 cup black cherry preserves



How to make

  1. STEP 1
    Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. STEP 2
    Combine all ingredients except preserves in large bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.
  3. STEP 3
    Roll out dough on well-floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 2 1/2-inch round cookie cutter. 
  4. STEP 4
    Place half of cookies, 2 inches apart, onto greased cookie sheets; place 1 teaspoon preserves in center of each cookie. Make cut-out with very small cookie cutter in tops of remaining cookies. Place on top of preserves; press edges together with fork. Bake 12-15 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned.
